MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Desoto County

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is hosting a pond management workshop in Desoto County. The workshop will be held at the Hernando Public Library at 370 W Commerce Street (see http://www.firstregional.org/page7.html for a map) on Saturday, April 27 at 10:00 a.m.  An hour-long presentation will include topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, and fertilization. A question-and-answer period will follow. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to register by calling the MDWFP North Region Office at (662) 840-5172.

"This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish populations and habitat," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist Keith Meals. "This is a great way for us to provide how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals."
